Thanks DigleyDog, that’s really nice of you to say that. I think I’d enjoy the playing as apparently it’s a really small and relaxed group usually. Just need to get past the irrational phobias of public transportation, unfamiliar situations and being in the crowds of drunken revellers in the city centre at night. If I can overcome all that then I reckon it’ll be a great night. Thanks again for your kind words of encouragement. They mean more than I know to say. :)

That really is a great-sounding guitar, and nicely played.  I hope that you make it to the blues night. People would really love to hear you play live.

Thanks Blind Doughboy. I have a video on my page of this guitar unplugged and played acoustically. Glad that you like this one. I appreciate your kind words.

Nice tri-cone.  I'd be interested in a video where we can hear it unplugged (hard to beat the sound of acoustic reso guitars)

Thanks Jim. I’m glad you enjoyed the video. Thinking my next build will either be a rusty old tin with a banjo type resonator back or another tricone since I already have three cones, a tailpiece and some other bits left over from this build. Probably the rusty tin one this time though due to finances being massively problematic right now. Thanks again and all the best to you.

Well done Bear! The tri cone sounds awesome! I dig the blue lighting too.

Thanks Paul. Glad you like it. Hoping to start building something new when I get the chance between back pain and hospital appointments. Hopefully make a start on it this week anyway. 

Thanks again :0)

The Tri-Cone turned out great, congrats.

Thanks Dennis. Glad you like it. Means a lot :o)
